Hi there!! My name is Manuela, I'm from Colombia, i'm a doctor :)and I  really want you to know my story!! 

Since i was a little girl I dreamed of being a doctor, helping people, healing pain and suffering, making a difference... Being not only academically good but a great human being , a support for the sick, the sad and the ones in pain....

Now that I have reached that I am completely happy and thankfull I love my job and my patients but ...I believe that I can give even more ... so I want to embark on a new dream ... to become an Otolaryngologist!!

From the moment I saw my teachers at the operating room helping a deaf person and giving him the sense of hearing , and the moment I witnessed when a person who had been deaf his whole life heard for the first time crying of happiness because a succesfull cochlear implant surgery i knew that I wanted to do that the rest of my life!!!!

As a singer and a musician I can tell you how much I value the power of music, the sounds of the environment and I believe that if I can help someone else to achieve this innate right, I must do it!

I know there is much to do and to help and I have the passion, the motivation and the tenacity to do it ... from now im studying to apply to the MIR exam in Spain, to do my specialization there.... do you accompany me to achieve this dream?
